BBA Ride Summaries

BBA – Explorer GPX Route – Saturday and Sunday
180ish mile scenic loop with pavement and dirt roads designed for ADV Bikes and beginner dirt riders
This route may or may not have optional Hero II or harder sections

Big Bike Adventure GPX Routes (BBA) – Saturday and Sunday
The traditional BBA main route is Hero I and II unimproved dirt roads with optional III to IV Hero sections along the route
The route will be different each day

BBA Dual Sport GPX Ride – Sunday Only
A Dual Sport ride designed with Mid sized Bikes in mind
Fear not Big Bikers, GS’s and the likes should be able to complete 70+% of the ride

This route is comprised of some of the best hero section the Berkshires has to offer and is designed to have a higher completion rate than the Triple B DS Ride or other typical NETRA Dual Sport rides

The route is continuous hero sections broken up with as few slab sections as possible
There will be minimal bypass options routed as the use of GPS allows riders to find the best way around the harder sections

Team Work Makes the Dream Work
We are again providing GPX (GPS eXchange format) to participants for navigation

We encourage rider teams of four, not to exceed eight, with at least one of those riders being GPS savvy

A Note About BBA Sweep Riders
As with past BBA’s, we have limited sweep crews to cover the 500+ miles per day, thus the emphasis on team work

Do not expect a sweep rider to show up and render assistance, that is what your team is for

Sweep riders are there to help prepared riders and bikes. They are not there to extract a bike with worn tires or poorly maintained bikes

Along with the traditional BBA route, our goal is to also challenge the most experienced riders. We’re hoping for some wet weather to really make your challenge experience memorable.

Bobriwka Bike/Rider Code of Conduct
Bobrwika is looking forward to having us at the camp and as always is concerned about wet/sensitive areas and loud bikes.
 
  • Riders are required to use stock or quieter exhaust
  • If you know or think you have a loud bike, re-pack your silencer prior to the event
  • Ride slowly within the main camp area (Camp trails are fair game for brapping)
  • Fast, loud or aggressive riding in and around camp will not be tolerated
  • Damaging meadows or camp roads will not be tolerated
We plan on using this facility for years to come and need your help to make this happen
 

Massachusetts Residents

If you live in Mass, you are already aware of this…

“All Riders from Massachusetts Must have their OFF HIGHWAY Vehicle Registered”. We’re planing on the hero sections traveling on trails in Mass State Forests. Mass Environmental Police will exempt out of state riders for this event, but can not for Mass residents. 

New Reg Link:  https://www.mass.gov/how-to/first-time-atv-and-snowmobile-registration
(Since all bikes need to be street registered for the event, your registration is proof taxes have been paid.)
